December 22, 2022 Interview – Mauro Borrelli
An award-winning director with a background in art, Mauro Borrelli is a unique talent who has worked in film for nearly four decades now. An artist at heart, working as an illustrator on many projects, he has worked alongside the likes of Francis Ford Coppola, Tim Burton, and Gore Verbinski, just to name a few. So, what does someone like Borrelli do with such experience? Make his own films of course!
Doing just that in recent years he has taken the reins for several feature films including The Ghostmaker in 2012, The Recall in 2017, and most recently, Mindcage in 2022. Starring John Malkovich, Martin Lawrence, and Melissa Roxburgh, Mindcage is a classic cat-and-mouse type Thriller in the vein of classics like Silence of Lambs (1991). Heavily leaning toward the side of a noir style film, Mauro Borrelli recently sat down to talk about his approach to filmmaking, the importance of color in film, plus a lot more.
